[Personal]

[personal] A good evening in

My mother got sprung from the hospital this afternoon. As it happens, today was the day Mother of the Child had organized The Child’s (somewhat belated) family birthday party. calendula_witch was here, as were lillypond and The Niece. So we had a Chinese food feast, then festive cake with pumpkin ice cream, all of it something of a double celebration. (The Child’s favorite gift appeared to be the Yoyo Ma tickets her other grandparents gave her.)

I’m primary caregiver tonight and tomorrow, with all that implies. (Including a day off work.) My aunts, my mother’s sisters, should be arriving tomorrow evening, which will spread that responsibility around. After that, we’ll see how it goes forward.

For now, I sleep until the next medication alarm.
